Aromatic Spice Blends is delighted to offer a selection of single-origin whole spices from Burlap & Barrel, a company committed to equitably sourced spices that support small farmers around the world.

From Burlap & Barrel:

Our Herati Saffron has a beautiful delicate floral flavor, golden color and warm, honeyed fragrance reminiscent of dried roses and fresh hay. Our saffron threads are pulled carefully from the flower, which leaves a characteristic flame-colored tail. That slight gradation in color is your assurance that our saffron is 100% pure and never dyed or otherwise adulterated. The threads are also uncommonly delicate.

Saffron is a key element in cuisines from the Mediterranean to South Asia and is used in both sweet and savory preparations. It adds a distinctive floral flavor and golden color to fragrant rice dishes like paella, risotto and biryani, to frozen desserts like ice cream and kulfi, and to traditional teas. It is often paired with cardamom, pistachio and rosewater.Saffron is also said to have beneficial health properties, including increasing serotonin levels, reducing stress and anxiety and reducing hunger pangs.

Our saffron is of the highest quality, sometimes called super negin or sargol, depending on how it is harvested and graded.
